Security Door Controls

Robert Lovato brings a wealth of security experience from perimeter to interior, beginning his career in 1977 by attending locksmith school at the California Institute of Locksmithing. His first job was for an alarm company before turning to locksmithing in 1980, dealing with every facet of applications in commercial, residential, industrial and institutional environments- even building safe rooms for celebrities. During that time, he continued his education and became licensed in electric gates and access control, and received certifications from all the major brands of security manufacturers. He immersed himself in the camera world before specializing in high-end security and access control in the late 1980’s- working on large, government-spec’d deployments in airports, jails, banks and secure facilities.

Besides having over 35 years of industry experience, Lovato has been the owner/operator of security business since 1986. He has been teaching his own employees to be job-ready since 1988. He presents access control retrofit classes year-round at ADI expos, has contributed to articles in security publications and appears in Robert’s Tech Talk– a series of on-going educational videos produced by SDC.
